Introduction
The Delcam iQube is a simple but powerful 3D scanner specifically
created for use in designing custom orthotic insoles. It is a versatile tool
that produces high quality orthotics and insoles.
The iQube gives complete flexibility with respect to the scan model.
Scanning a foot, a cast or a foam box impression, produces a high quality
3D image in approximately 3 seconds, saving time and improving the
quality of the output.
Using technology developed for the Aerospace industry, the iQube
scanner obtains a high level of detail using laser and multi-camera
configuration to produce a highly accurate full colour 3D image. The high
level of accuracy means that the custom orthotic is created correctly every
time, minimising the inconvenience to clients.
The Delcam iQube allows the foot to be scanned in several positions,
according to the needs of the patient.The scanner can be set up for use in
full weight bearing (Weight On), semi-weight bearing and non-weight
bearing (Weight Off) positions,
The scanner is lightweight and compact, making it fully portable; the
optional carrying case allows you to transport it for use it at different
locations. Once you have scanned the item, Delcam OrthoModel software
lets you design and manufacture the custom insole. Alternatively, use the
scan data with your existing orthotic CADCAM software.

European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (the WEEE Directive) stipulates that WEEE is now subject
to regulations designed to prevent the disposal of such waste and to
encourage design and treatment measures to minimize the amount of
waste that is placed into the waste system.
The purpose of this legislation is to preserve, protect and improve the
quality of the environment, protect human health, and stimulate the
practical use of natural resources. Specifically, the WEEE Directive
requires that producers of electrical and electronic equipment be
responsible for the collection, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE
which the producer places on the EU market after August 13, 2005.
As an importer of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), we have
endeavoured to meet these environmental responsibilities for managing
WEEE. The following information is to educate our customers about the
WEEE collection process.
In order to avoid any potential dissemination of hazardous substances into
the environment, the product has been labelled with the WEEE symbol
(see below) in order to alert the end-user that it should be disposed of
within the proper waste management system. That system will recycle,
reuse, and dispose of materials from this product in an environmentally
sound way.

 Amount of noise.
 Completeness of data
 Scan detail
Depending upon the model colour, quality and required detail the Colour
and Detail settings can be modified for each type of Scan Model.
Default settings for all the Scan Models are:
 Foot (Caucasian)
Detail - Medium-High
Colour - 2nd Darkest
 Foam Box (Red Foam)
Detail - Medium
Colour - 2nd Lightest
 Cast (White Plaster)
Detail - Medium
Colour - Light
These settings are based upon previous tests but may need to be modified.

Changing the Default Scan Settings
The default settings used by Delcam Orthotic Insoles are specified in
a text file. The values can be changed so that each session uses a revised
set of values.
1. Ensure that Delcam Orthotic Insoles is not running.
2. Open the following file using a text editor:
[install
drive]/Delcam/PowerSHAPEXXXXX/file/orthotics/orthotics_scanner.con
3. Make the required changes to the file. You can make the following
changes to the settings:
 Change to high definition foot capture (see page 41).
 Change the default timer delay (see page 42).
 Change the default scan model (see page 42).
 Change the sensitivity and resolution (see page 43).
4. Save the changes you have made to the text file.
5. Restart Delcam Orthotic Insoles.

Change to high definition foot capture mode
This can only be used with the E500 (5Camera) system
The foot capture mode uses the following section of the text file to set the
scanner definition. By default, the foot capture mode is set to 0 so that
three cameras are used to capture the foot definition.
If the scanner is an E500 model (5 cameras), it is advisable to change the
foot capture mode to High Definition by editing the text file to read:
capture_foot: 1
This mode captures more data around the heel region of the foot.
Change the timer delay
The default time delay is 5 seconds. Use the following section of the text
file to change the setting to reflect the delay you require:

Change the default scan item
The item that is scanned is specified in the following section of the text
file:
By default, scan_item is set to 0 . This sets up the scanner to a foot.
Possible settings for scan_item are:
0 Foot
1 Cast
2 Foam Box
Changing the sensitivity and resolution
Delcam Orthotic Insoles software as been set up with the optimum
settings for scanning feet, foam boxes and casts. The scan results depend
on the following factors:
 Lighting conditions (artificial lighting).
 Colour of item being scanned.
 Level of detail required.
If the scan results are not satisfactory, try adjusting the default setting for
sensitivity and resolution.
Adjusting the sensitivity settings may improve the scan results in the
following situations:
 If the material is dark, increasing the sensitivity may improve the
scan result.
 If the results are affected by artificial lighting, reducing the
sensitivity settings may improve the scan result. Alternatively, try
moving the scanner to another location or turnng off the artificial
lighting.
 Increasing the sensitivity captures more data becaues the internal
cameras are ‘open’ for longer.
There is a greater risk of capturing ‘noisy’ data if the sensitivity is
increased. This will increase the time taken to process the mesh.
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Manual
Using the Delcam Orthotic Insoles Software • 43
Sensitivity
Sensitivity is controlled in the following section of the text file:
The default sensitivity values are:
sensitivity_foot: high
sensitivity_foam: low
sensitivity_cast: very_low
The sensitivity settings can have the following values:
very_low
low
normal
high
very_high
44 • Using the Delcam Orthotic Insoles Software
Delcam iQube 2010 Reference Manual
Resolution
The detail that is captured by the scan is controlled by adjusting the
resolution section of the text file:
The default resolution values are:
resolution_foot: 1.25
resolution_foam: 1.5
resolution_cast: 1.5
The resolution settings can have any value between 0.5 and 1.5.
When adjusting the resolution setting, you should consider the following:
 If you decrease the value(for example to 0.5), you are increasing
the detail because less points are being filtered out.
 If you increase the resolution (by entering a smaller value), you
filter out less points and more detail will be retained. However, you
may introduce data that will hinder the creation of a smooth
orthotic.
 If you increase the resolution, the time taken to process the mesh
will increased.
